“red bean paste in kolach-like bread”
Review of Hwangnam Bread

Hwangnam Bread
Ranked #1 of 5 Bakeries in Gyeongju
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 December 2016

Had a local take us to Hwangnam bread for a pre-lunch snack. They make a single product. It is similar to a kolach with a red bean filling. I am not a red bean fan but most of the rest of the group really liked them. They were fresh baked, still hot and needing to cool a little.

I visit this shop after sightseeing for the old town and culture in Gyeongju. This is a large building and have a lot of staff. Inside is clean. The test of bread is yummy. Not too sweet for me.

At first I thought it will taste like the usual bread with red bean paste filling, but a bite of Gyeongju bread had totally changed my thought. The red bean paste is not too sweet and its' taste somehow quite different than my expectation of the usual one. I am not sure either I was really hungry or the bread really taste that great.

I did understand why "this simple traditional bread filled with red bean inside" is famous and full of compliments in the moment I tried in first place.
"Medium sweetness" had worked for both myself who's normally not into sweet things and my 7 year-old son who loves sweet desserts.
Elder people also loves this as a dessert especially with tea or coffee.
Perfect gift when traveling Gyeongju, Korea. Recommended!!!

p.s. Parking lot available for around 15 vehicles. Post parcel available at the counter.
